Anxiety can be miserable to experience. Whether it's panicking, avoiding social interaction or other everyday scenarios, or inability to focus or sustain attention - it makes it hard to participate in life. It can be embarrassing and make us just want to stay at home. When we're struggling, we need someone who will guide us through the process of healing. In individual counseling you are meeting with a therapist 1:1, setting goals related to relationships, behavior patterns, or specific mental health issues. Sessions are typically 53-60 minutes and typically start out once per week depending on severity and other factors.
Individual Anxiety Counseling
Individual counseling is a great opportunity for those with different anxiety issues (generalized anxiety, social anxiety, ADHD, and others) to be able to identify personalized strategies to help you reengage your life. Our therapists understand how intrusive and upsetting anxiety is and the degree to which it can take over your life.
Once you submit your form we give you a quote on what it will cost, use some questionnaires to better understand any therapist preferences you have as well as a baseline look at some of your symptoms. Based on that, a licensed therapist will evaluate which therapists would likely be the best fit, and then you will pick the best therapist from that shortened list. Ready to get started?
Most anxiety symptoms are learned adaptations to the experiences we've had in life that have caused us to predict physical, emotional, social, or existential threat to us. Some of the ways it can show up are:
Excessive worry that is challenging to control
The above symptoms occur more often than not for at least 6 months
You won't have to ask yourself is counseling is doing anything. You and your therapist will know without a doubt whether the counseling is leading to any results. Using our software you'll be able to check your symptom levels, your goals, your progress on them, and the outside of session focus for the week.
In addition, we'll be adding to our content library so that you can empower yourself through reading, watching, or listening to reliable information about mental health and the ways in which counseling works to actually change your life. That information further empowers you to dialogue with your therapist and be clear with them about what you want and where you want to go as you discover it where your journey with depression, anxiety, trauma, or other issues takes you.
